FC Union Berlin is welcoming Fortuna Dusseldorf to An der Alten Forsterei in round 34, the last round of German Bundesliga.
The season is basically over even before this match for Union as they are in 12th place with 38 points, 8 points outside the relegation zone. I would say a successful season for Union Berlin, and so would they. Union has scored 38 goals so far this season, while they conceded massive 58 goals. Andersson has scored 12 goals for Union, while Bulter added 7 goals. Trimmel added 8 assists for Union Berlin. Gogia and Ryerson are both injured and will not be playing in the last game of the season. In their last Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim on the road, Union has had 41% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. Union Berlin has lost this game 4-0, but fortunately for them, the other results went in their favor. Union’s main goal before this season was to stay in Bundesliga, and I’m sure the ambitions grew during the season, but Union Berlin is safe, and they are actually where they deserve to be. Overall, a good season for Union Berlin.
Fortuna is in a tricky situation going into the last game of the season. With only 1 win since the season was restarted, Fortuna is in 16th place with 30 points, the spot that leads into the relegation playoffs, but the problem is that Werder is only 2 points behind them. Fortuna can’t go higher even if they win, but if they lose, and Werder gets a win, Fortuna will go straight to Bundesliga 2. With 64 conceded goals in 33 games, Fortuna has one of the weakest defenses in Bundesliga, while they scored 36 goals. In their last Bundesliga game against Augsburg at home, Fortuna has had more possession, 57% of ball possession, but only 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 81% of the correct passes. We saw 1 goal on each side in the first half, and the result didn’t change again in this game. The final result was 1-1. Henning has been Fortuna’s best player and a top goal scorer with 15 goals, while Karaman and Thommy added 6 goals each. Thommy also added 5 assists. Steffen and Barkok are both injured and none of them will be playing in this game. Fortuna can’t risk anything here and they must go for the win, as I’ve said tricky situation. Fortuna has only 2 wins on the road this season and I wouldn’t want to be in their skin this weekend.
Union Berlin is safe, but that doesn’t mean they will just let Fortuna win in this match. The trends are pretty even here, and just thinking about how Fortuna must win here, I think we could see a lot of goals.
